So I said to myself, for my first try I'll make a Sakimaru Takobiki saya. lol The knife did need one though. I was using a makeshift saya made from fish tub plastic, electrical tape and sticker backed black felt. This one is made from walnut that I scored from Mark at Burl Source.

It's not perfect and don't ask me to show you the inside either! I learned a few things along the way and definitely need some better tools. Chisels, rasps and files please. Anyway, I'm happy with it and it's the 1st one down.

Thanks all but I have the luxury of going second if you will. The road has been paved already, I'm just starting out on it. I do think that if I had a few more hand tools, a 6" belt grinder, a 9" disk and a scroll saw I could really start to turn out some nicer stuff. More efficiently too. One thing at a time though. The Charger needs an Eibach sport suspension kit this summer. :D
